Massachusetts plastic surgeon facing drug charges
LYNN, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts plastic surgeon who's been a guest on several national television programs is facing drug charges.
Police say 70-year-old Sheldon Sevinor was arrested Sunday when officers conducting surveillance on a suspected drug dealer witnessed what appeared to be a drug transaction involving Sevinor.
Prosecutors say Sevinor's arraignment is scheduled for Oct. 11. Police say he's charged with possession of crack cocaine.
Sevinor's attorney tells The Daily Item of Lynn that his client "has never been accused of any type of inappropriate behavior" in 40 years as a surgeon but declined comment on the specifics of the charges.
Sevinor lives in Nahant and has offices in Lynn, Boston and Florida. He has been a featured guest on Good Morning America, The Oprah Winfrey Show, The View, Inside Edition, and other shows.
